Your landlord will soon have to give you a notice if they want to raise your rent in Naples.

The ordinance passed at city council Wednesday night six to one requires landlords to notify renters of a 5% increase in their rent.

Landlords must give a 60-day notice in advance of the increase.

This comes amid the recent spike in rental prices in Southwest Florida, especially in Naples.

The ordinance gives renters time to decide what they can do next pay the increased price, or move.

Those renting short-term, between 15 and 60 days, will also be impacted. In those cases, landlords must provide a 15-day written notice of rent increase.

In May, the Collier County Board of County Commissioners considered a similar ordinance, but it failed.
